Here is a Teardown Video of the Man himself:

 Can you point out which of the Chips that would be, which are you are interrested in, with a Screenshot and some Arrows or something?
 .
 Also check out this post i made a while ago while trying to mess around with the Cooling of the Sensor, that might even be the chip you are looking for. If not, let me know.

Thank you for the follow up. Your photos and the video breakdown are great.
Just curious if the FPGA is Xilinx or Alterra (intel) ? Donít have a lot of time to deep dive right now so hoping someone knows this and sees this reply.

We use a single Lattice ECP5 (LFE5U-85F-8BG756I) in both the 1.4 and 2.1.

You'll see it in David's teardown video here: https://youtu.be/Y_TFiA05tcc?t=294

Thank you for the quick reply. My bad for assuming ... my brother was with Alterra for 10+ years.
